"WOMAN WITH RAISED ARMS" PICASSO (2023) 50 EURO

Picasso and the photographer Dora Maar met in Paris at the legendary café Deux Magots in 1936, shortly before the start of the Spanish civil war. He portrayed her dozens of times. She was his model and his muse. One of these portraits, Woman with raised arms.

There are scholars of art and Picasso's work who interpret that this is the way in which the man from Malaga celebrated a new love, but also the beginning of a new artistic stage. Inspired by the photographer Dora Maar, the painting was painted in Paris at the beginning of the summer of 1936. Picasso was already beginning to show his anxiety about the war in Spain.
